Lucid Air EV Earns EPA Estimated Range of 517 Miles

Lucid had promised more than 400 miles of range a few years ago. With an EPA estimated 517 miles, they’ve kept their promise.


  • This would give the Air the title of longest-range EV to date.

  • The verification was done by FEV, an independent engineering service provider.

  • The production version of the Lucid Air debuts online on September 9, 2020.


Lucid is another EV startup that is gaining traction. They have shared a fair amount of information over the last few months but this is perhaps the most noteworthy. They are quite proud to announce that its estimated range makes the Lucid Air the longest range EV at the moment.

The Final Test Before Production: The Lucid Air Winter Tackles Winter Driving

The Lucid Air’s battery pack is in part the result of Atieva, Lucid’s technology division, supplying battery packs for Formula E racing series since 2018 and continuing until 2022. Through this experience, they were also able to develop an in-house industry-leading drivetrain for unmatched compactness and efficiency.

Lucid brought the Air to FEV in order to see if their computer-modeled range prediction were accurate. The result is, following the official EPA standard testing procedure, that the Air achieves an estimated EPA range of 517 miles.

“I’m delighted that the Lucid Air has been independently verified by FEV to achieve an estimated EPA range of 517 miles, and that this landmark in the history of EV development has been achieved entirely through Lucid’s in-house technology,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO, and CTO of Lucid Motors. “I believe that our 900-volt architecture, our race-proven battery packs, miniaturized motors and power electronics, integrated transmission systems, aerodynamics, chassis and thermal systems, software, and overall system efficiency has now reached a stage where it collectively sets a new standard and delivers a host of ‘world’s firsts.’”
